Kerala Chief Minister V.S. Achuthanandan on Sunday hit out at Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi's comment on his age by calling him an ''Amul baby''.

Gandhi, at an election meeting Saturday, pointed out that if the Left came back to power, then at the end of its five-year term the state would have a 93-year-old chief minister. Achuthanandan is 87 years old.

"Is it my fault that I am 87 and even at this age I am going on like this? Please remember that when I was in Class 7 my father passed away and after that I could not continue my studies. At the age of 16 I was involved in fighting the British. Please tell me where was Rahul Gandhi (politically) before he was 40 years," asked Achuthanandan amidst huge applause by supporters gathered around him.

"The Amul baby has come here to campaign for some Amul baby candidates of the Congress party," added Achuthanandan in a taunt. Rahul Gandhi is 40 years old.

The Kerala assembly elections will be held April 13 and the results will be declared May 13.
